from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Summer 8

The nursery classes have continued planting and growing and now have runner beans and pumpkin seeds in the soil, hoping that there will be an autumn crop in time for Halloween. They have extended their positional language and understanding of growth. The sunflower seeds have developed and been sent home so we would love to see a photo later in the year when they bloom. The grass heads they started last week already look as though they need a trip to the hairdresser! The children have been very busy making cards which I am certain will be enjoyed on Sunday!

Transition children have continued learning about life cycles and watching the development of live caterpillars in the classroom. Using pasta and real leaves they have created pictures of butterfly life cycles and have made symmetrical butterflies using a range of materials. They have also been busy making cards for Sunday. 

All the children have been on the running track and have started practising for our Sports Day on Friday 6 July. If you are away on holiday at that time please let your child’s class leader know as soon as possible so that running teams can be organised. Please send your children in wearing practical running shoes from now on as we endeavour to use the running track as often as possible.

During the week commencing 18 June the nursery children will be learning about minibeasts, the colour black, the number 7 and the letter n. Any small toys incorporating a minibeast or black would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will also be learning about minibeasts and the letter a.


Please park on College Avenue when dropping off and picking up your children. By the Nursery gate there are 30 minute parking places on either side of the road and, other than 11.00 – 13.00 (residents parking), the rest of College Avenue is available. The onsite parking is meant for visitors and staff use only. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.


If sunshine is forecast please apply sun cream to your child before coming in and provide named sunhats.

And finally…..

We wish all our fathers a wonderful day on Sunday.
